The Science Guy, Mr. Bond, made an appearance during story hour on Thursday morning, June 25. With the help of volunteers from the audience, he performed and explained experiments dealing with air compressure, electricity, and  body heat. After the show was over, all participants of the reading program were served muffins and icy pops before choosing a prize from the treasure chest.
